    I have a killer b actually made by Gibson. Does anyone have a four screw bridge for sale? I need to replace it. I will check the classifieds but thought I would check here as well. Thanks for the help.

    Unfortunately those bridges were produced by wilkinson and no longer made.

    I have retro fit Hipshot "B" bridges with no trouble and gibson used stock ABM bridges for the 5 and 4 string models.

    You may find one used on the market. Best of luck.

    Wow...this was a huge help. I don't know allot about hardware but this is enough to take me further down the road. Thanks. Just out of curiosity, are these basses well respected? I like the string spacing but it's always felt felt delicate in my hands. Thoughts?

    They're the most respected when you pull your strap up really high - ha!

    Next time you'll keep the loc-tite away from your "luthier" :-D
     
  6. Delicate? I can't figure how they're any more delicate than any other bolt-on solid body bass guitar. Less delicate than the cheap ones. You must break hollowbodies into splinters.

    SOme people like them. SOme people don't. Others say good ones are good, but quality hasn't been consistent over the years, so try them out until you find a good one. I had one. I liked it.

    His go-to bass is a 5-string Stingray, and he regularly throws it around his back, SRV style.. No joke.
